The Wildcats have won five straight Pac-12 games

Arizona Baseball 8, USC 5

TUCSON, AZ - Arizona Baseball resumed Saturday night’s game against the USC Trojans on Sunday afternoon at Hi Corbett Field and came away victorious, 8-5.

The series finale – scheduled to begin following the conclusion of the resumed game – was cancelled due to weather.

Prior to the game the Wildcats three rostered seniors – outfielder Justin Wylie, left-handed pitcher Avery Weems, and right-handed pitcher Cameron Haskell – were joined by their family and friends to be honored in an annual senior day ceremony.

Ryan Holgate hit a two-run home run for Arizona. Branden Boissiere had two hits and the freshman now sports a remarkable conference batting average of .412 in 51 at-bats.

Quinn Flanagan (6-3) worked 5.1 innings and allowed just two runs on five hits while earning the win. Vince Vannelle closed out the game for the Cats, tossing 1.2 shutout frames and earning his second save of the season.

The Wildcats (24-24, 12-14) finished the season with a home conference record of 11-3.

Arizona has added a second game Monday night against Sam Houston State – first pitch is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. MST.
